Humility

Humility

जे एगं नाम से बहुं नामे

One, who becomes humble, can make many others too

If we want that others should respect us, then we also should respect them. One who is arrogant, he is hated by others; he cannot get respect from anywhere.

Opposite of arrogance is the attribute of humility. One, who is humble, everyone respects him. Fruit of knowledge is also humility. Humility creates receptivity and that man becomes receptacle of all qualities and a man of respect. One who bows down, that man only, due to his virtues, one day attains that high position that all start bowing before him.

Therefore, advice of experienced men is that before practicing for acquiring other qualities, practice humility – be humble. Humility makes practice of other qualities easy because the base of all intrinsic worth is humility.
